The older Talonsoft series had numerous third party Mods, scenarios running around and I assume some of that exists with Matix's version? Does Matrix plan on officially expanding the Battleground series (Civil War and Napoleonic) along with the WWII Campaign series? I actually preferred the BG version of WWII as it was similar in play to the Civil War/Napoleonic versions. Either way I'm glad these are back out and supported.
